ASNH participates in public and private outreach events throughout CT. We support educational programs at schools and museums by providing educational classroom assistance as well as viewing sessions with member scopes or at the observatory.
Various private clubs, churches and non-profit organizations ask us to host both private and public viewing parties throughout the year.
The society hosts public events throughout the year where the public is encouraged to attend, ask questions and enjoy the breathtaking views and educational experience.
Events are listed in the ASNH calendar. Reminders are sent out prior to events.
Volunteers are critical to the success of the club. Successful events generate donations and new members. Owning a telescope is not a pre-requisite for being a member of the club, or for volunteering at an event. Some of the roles that we need help with are showing folks where to park, moving folks along from one venue to the next and answering questions about the club. The more events you attend the more you learn about the different telescopes and the objects in the sky. The more volunteers at an event the merrier.
